UPDATED: 'Men in Black 3' Poised To Hit $400 Million Worldwide Today on June 05, 2012

Tuesday (6/5) Update: Sony reports that Men in Black 3 banked $398.8 million worldwide heading into today, which means the sci-fi flick will reach the $400 million worldwide plateau today.

Monday (5/28) Update: Sony's estimate is still $202 million worldwide over four days for Men in Black 3.

Sunday Update: Sony reports that Men in Black 3 will reach $202 million worldwide by the end of Monday. The studio estimates that $70 million of that will come from North America. MiB3 is currently playing in 106 territories and it's the #1 film in 104 of them.

Saturday Update: Men in Black 3 rebounded from a weak midnight gross by bringing in a solid $18 million on Friday. We're project $57 from Fri-Sun and $72 million from Fri-Mon.

Chernobyl Diaries took in a modest $3.5 million on Friday. We're projecting $9.2 million for Fri-Sun and $10.8 million for Fri-Mon.

Friday Update: Men in Black 3 was able to take in a modest $1.550 million from midnight shows. That's an underwhelming debut for such an established property and it certainly doesn't bode well for the four-day weekend.

Comparable midnight openings include Clash of the Titans with $1.545 million and Bruno with $1.6 million.

Chernobyl Diaries, the low-budget horror flick that's opening in the shadow on MiB3, took in $525,000.

FANDANGO ACHIEVES ITS BEST MAY IN COMPANY HISTORY on June 04, 2012

LOS ANGELES, CA -- Fandango, the nation's leading moviegoer destination, announced today that it delivered its best-ever May numbers for both traffic and ticket sales in the company's 12-year history. The company reported a 47 % surge in year-over-year ticket sales, a 29% percent year-over-year increase in monthly visitors (totaling 34 million in May 2012, the highest monthly unique visitors in company history), and its top monthly mobile percentage (28%) of total tickets sold.

"Fandango's record-setting May is yet another signal of the incredible momentum behind Fandango right now," said Executive Vice President and General Manager Rick Butler. "Our enormous network of theater screens and box office share, combined with our innovative mobile and social products as well as our extensive coverage of movie news and film reviews, has made Fandango an essential destination for moviegoers everywhere."

Fandango sold its first ticket twelve years ago, during the first week of June in 2000. Helping fuel Fandango's growth surge is the company's expanded exhibitor reach, thanks to recent deals with AMC Theatres, Regency Theatres and other chains - as well as record-setting May ticket sales for "The Avengers." In addition, Fandango struck recent partnerships with Yahoo! and AOL's Moviefone, becoming the movie ticketing provider for both sites. Fandango's innovations - including its award-winning mobile and tablet apps and social products, such as its recently launched Facebook app, "Movies With Friends," reserved seating, and paperless Mobile Ticket scanning - are now available to millions of additional moviegoers through these new partnerships.

 

MARVEL STUDIOS BEGINS PRODUCTION ON THIRD INSTALLMENT OF THE BLOCKBUSTER FRANCHISE “IRON MAN” on June 04, 2012

BURBANK, Calif. (June 4, 2012) - Following in the footsteps of the record-breaking Marvel Studios' release "Marvel's The Avengers," production on the highly anticipated film "Iron Man 3," directed by Shane Black, has commenced production in Wilmington, North Carolina. The production schedule will also include locations in Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina, Miami, Florida and China.

Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1963, "Iron Man 3" returns Robert Downey Jr. ("Iron Man," "Marvel's The Avengers") as the iconic Super Hero character Tony Stark/Iron Man along with Gwyneth Paltrow ("Iron Man," "Iron Man 2,") as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle ("Iron Man 2") as James "Rhodey" Rhodes and Jon Favreau ("Iron Man," "Iron Man 2") as Happy Hogan. Set for release in the U.S. on May 3, 2013, Marvel's "Iron Man 3" marks the second feature to be fully owned, marketed and distributed by Disney, which acquired Marvel in 2009.

"Iron Man 3" continues the epic, big-screen adventures of the world's favorite billionaire inventor/Super Hero, Tony Stark aka "Iron Man." Marvel Studios' President Kevin Feige is producing the film. Executive producers on the project include Jon Favreau, Louis D'Esposito, Alan Fine, Stan Lee, Charles Newirth, Victoria Alonso, Stephen Broussard and Dan Mintz.

The creative production team on the film includes two-time Oscar®-winning director of photography John Toll, ASC ("Braveheart," "Legends of the Fall"), production designer Bill Brzeski ("The Hangover," "Due Date"), editors Jeffrey Ford, A.C.E. ("Marvel's The Avengers," "Captain America: The First Avenger") and Peter S. Elliot ("Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer"), and costume designer Louise Frogley ("Quantum of Solace," "Contagion").

Marvel Studios most recently produced the critically acclaimed "Marvel's The Avengers," which set the all-time, domestic 3-day weekend box office record at $207.4 million. The film, which is currently in release, continues to shatter box office records and is The Walt Disney Studios' highest-grossing global and domestic release of all time and marks the studios' fifth film to gross more than $1 billion worldwide.

In the summer of 2011, Marvel successfully launched two new franchises with "Thor," starring Chris Hemsworth, and "Captain America: The First Avenger," starring Chris Evans. Both films opened #1 at the box office and have grossed over $800 million worldwide combined. In 2010 "Iron Man 2," starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson and Mickey Rourke, took the #1 spot in its first weekend with a domestic box office gross of $128.1 million.

In the summer of 2008, Marvel produced the summer blockbuster movies "Iron Man" and "The Incredible Hulk." "Iron Man," in which Robert Downey Jr. originally dons the Super Hero's powerful armor and stars alongside co-stars Terrence Howard, Jeff Bridges and Gwyneth Paltrow, was released May 2, 2008, and was an immediate box office success. Garnering the number one position for two weeks in a row, the film brought in over $100 million in its opening weekend. On June 13, 2008, Marvel released "The Incredible Hulk," marking its second number one opener of that summer.

The Super Hero team-up crossed the $600 million threshold at the global box office in 12 days, and its cumulative worldwide box office gross is an estimated $654.8 million.

It is a testament to all involved with this film that audiences across the board are embracing the film in this record-setting way," said Marvel's The Avengers producer Kevin Feige.

"Joss Whedon, Kevin Feige and the whole Marvel team have done something really incredible with The Avengers," said Dave Hollis, Executive Vice President, Theatrical Exhibition Sales and Distribution, The Walt Disney Studios. "From the super-talented cast to the spectacular visual effects, it's a grand slam, and we're proud to be a part of this history-making film."

In just three days, Marvel's The Avengers is the fastest movie to reach $200 million domestically. The domestic debut kicked off Friday, May 4, and marks the second-highest single-day take of all time at $80.8 million, followed by record-breaking days on Saturday ($69.5 million) and Sunday ($57 million).

Marvel's The Avengers began opening internationally April 25 and has set records as the biggest opening weekend of all time in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Ecuador, Central America, Peru, Bolivia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, and United Arab Emirates. It opened in Russia May 3 with $17.9 million to make it the biggest Marvel opening weekend ever. It debuted in China on May 5 with $18 million over two days.
